Hi,

I'm trying to convert a Hindi book into ePub.

I have embedded all fonts into css and the i can view it clearly in firefox, firefox ePub addon and even in ADE.

But when I sync the ePub with iPad I cannot view the hindi fonts instead it shows the junk character that are usually displayed when the hindi fonts are not embedded..

Can anyone suggest me a suitable solution for this..?

Care to send/attach the book? I have never tried converting any Indian language books before as most of what I have are really blotchy scanned pdfs, but would like to give it a shot.

I wouldn't be surprised if iBooks didn't properly support embedded fonts...

See here (http://blog.threepress.org/2010/04/05/ibooks-and-epub/) (point 8).

Hello Prakash,

Just wanted to check on the same topic , I was trying to convert a Hindi file to ePUB and it did not work.

I was using the Calibre tool for this.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Dilip
